I was hoping that was the case..lol... I may start reading it and just take at the same moderate pace that I read the first one. Ill let the quality create my momentum..lol.. I hate leaving series hanging as well, so its an inevitability that ill end up reading them out of pure OCD.. haha

I'm excited for the rest of the book.

I read A Brief History of Time which was good but I think this book has more potential for reaching out to the average reader because it is so accessible.

Yeah that book is awesome.
